's government decided to step down after a standoff with hezbollah. the prime minister had been in office for over two years. hezbollah had helped put him in office, but they fell out over domestic issues. there were also tensions over neighboring syria. hezbollah strongly backs president bashar al-assad. >> on friday, cyprus was still trying to find a way out of its financial crisis. the finance minister had tried russia, traveling to moscow to drum up support for it he left without clinching -- support. he left without clinching a deal. time is running out. the european central bank said it would cut off emergency funding if a plan was not in place by monday. friday saw some signs of progress. pearlman passed bills to restructure the banks and place restrictions on transactions in times of crisis -- harlem and passed bills to restructure the banks and place restrictions on transactions in times of crisis. but at the end of the day, he has still not come up with the 5.8 billion euros that was being demanded. >> the countries that ask for solidarity must be prepared to do what is required
of hezbollah or the friends of hamas. assuming that no one could take seriously the idea that organizations with those names existed. [laughter] why wouldn't you take it seriously? i mean, if there's no junior league of hezbollah, who puts out the cookbook of bomb recipes? [laughter] besides, the fact that these organizations don't exist only makes it more suspicious that chuck hagel has been tied to them. what else is he hiding that hasn't happened? is he a member of the al qaeda kidz club? [laughter] what about the muslim brotherhood? or the muslim sisterhood of the traveling pants? [cheers and applause] and what about non-islamic non-existent groups? has chuck hagel ever given a speech to cobra? or for that matter cobra kai? has he received donations from the lollipop guild? [laughter] what are his ties to the dead poet's society? and why are they dead? did they know too much about benghazi? [laughter] president obama, withdraw hagel's nomination, or you will lose the support of moderate republicans, another group that doesn't exist. [cheers and applause] folks, my favorite thing about s
after hezbollah convoys, taking out weaponry. i find there is nobody in israel that i met that since the united states -- maybe you think this is a big mistake --of all the people i talk to, cannot meet anyone who thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. they see it as such a mess that they do not see how it will be reversed. at the same time, they are concerned about has allowed -- about hezbollah taking weapons into lebanon or keeping them in parts of syria as a depot of the run. there are a lot of israelis who want to start being more proactive in firing on has blocked convoys -- on hezbollah convoys. the israelis are stunned that russians have given an anti-ship missiles that can hit things in israeli ports grid these are very advanced missiles. -- ports. these are very advanced missiles. it is defense for them. at the same time, israel feels that there might be certain defensive measures. we asked them -- they are not out to doing any sort of border zone like they did in lebanon. i think the discussion on syria, some believe the country is disintegrating, some believe the re
israel. that is why iran and hezbollah are massively stepping up their support of the job -- assad regime. they provide fighters on the ground. much of this weaponry is close to iraq. that cannot continue without consequences. unfortunately, jihadists groups are gaining popularity. they have convinced too syrians that they are on their side. many others are preparing for the day after his fall. syrian extremists are translating their battle success into authority over society as a whole, influencing schools and mosques. most of those extremists are from outside syria. many have shared with us their concerns about the influx of these foreign fighters. there are concerns with these extremists. to avoid a hostile syria armed with chemical weapons, we need to help better organize and empower the syrian opposition. though syrians who began the revolt by chanting, peaceful, peaceful. we have let them down. others worry about it deeply prolonged engagement. the british and the french have come to realize that the biggest winner has been assad. everything should be considered, but the u.s. could
and cass on ensues, that you have hezbollah there, you have al qaeda, you have some hamas elements there, and you have lots of chemical weapons and lots of very sophisticated conventional weapons that will be up for grabs. and that chaos will cause huge problem for the middle east, for southern europe, and i argue, for the unit stat. member,hese are sophisticated weapons system would make libya look like an antique gun show when all of those weapons spread across north africa. dangerous, destabilizing stuff. >> rose: we continue with a an analysis from richard haas of council on foreign relations, and joshua landis of the university of oklahoma. >> desperate leaders might do desperate things if they felt there was no alternative. i don'i don't think we can prevent the use unless we thaten, i if they are used on any significant scale, what do we do then? >> rose: we conclude with a look at the press conference pie the chairman of the federal reserve, ben bernanke. my guests alan blinder and david leonhardt. >> the most interesting part of the news conference was when bernanke was asked if
and there is a huge vacuum and chaos ensues, that you have hezbollah there. you have akd. al qaeda. you have some hamas elements there and you have lots of chemical weapons and lots of very sophisticate conventional weapons that will be up for grabs. and that chaos will cause huge trouble for the middle east, for southern europe, and i argue for the united states. remember, these are sophisticated weapon systems, would make libya look like an antique gun show when all of those weapons spread across north africa, really dangerous, destabilizing stuff. all of these things have to happen at the same time. i would like to see a safe zone with a no-fly zone so you can train and vet soldiers who have u.s. training to reengage in the battlefield, and prevent the use of those scud missiles. we have the capability t to do all of that. no big boots on the ground. no major military involvement, i think at the end of the day it would service our purpose. >> rose: i think you know there is a debate whether you can do this without boots on the ground. clearly, there are military possibilities of using air powe
weapons to terrorists, like has the law, -- like hezbollah, which might be used against israel. finally, we continue consultation on iran. we agree that a nuclear armed iran would be a threat to the and israel.he world we agree on our goal -- we do not have a policy of containment when it comes to a nuclear iraq. our policy is to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. there is still time to do so. must understand the need to meet their international obligations. international community will increase the pressure on the iranian government. the united states will continue to work closely with israel on steps. i will repeat -- all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting those weapons. meeting these challenges will not be easy. it will demand is encourage and resolve that those had who preceded us. tribute to the soldiers and leaders who had laid down their lives for israel. -- of them was in a letter, he wrote, don't forget justice and resolution is on our side. that is a great deal. you and your f
have a deteriorating situation on the ground. you have al-qaeda there. hezbollah there. we think hamas elements there. we know they have expressed a desire to get their hands on chemical weapons and more sophisticated weapons. this is a disaster that has happened for 70,000 syrians, and could be brought in to the whole wider middle east, southern europe. that is a huge problem. i think that is why the democrats and republicans are growing in chorus and saying we need to do something. not talking about huge military intervention, but there are capabilities we have that could impact the outcome. >> bret: you mentioner if reason sick evidence. is the u.s. trying to get forensic evidence? >> clearly, you want -- as an old f.b.i. guy, you want as much as you can get. if you can get forensic evidence that says for sure and for certain this is the chemical compound they use, that is great. there is a bunch of other information we can obtain that would lead to us a solid conclusion about the chemical weapons. >> bret: ambassador condoleezzsusanrice had the u.nn and do the investigation or help

northern border, iran's proxy, hezbollah, continues to stockpile arms and threaten our civilians while they target innocent people across the world. hezbollah is destroying lebanon and supporting the brutal massacre of the same people by president assad. fortunately, the syrian nuclear capacity was destroyed. but unfortunately, thousands of chemical weapons remain. we cann we cannot allow those weapons to fall in the terrorists' hands. it could lead to an epic tragedy. in an attempt to spring to the arab world, it is an arab choice, it is an arab initiative. it may bring peace to the region, freedom to the people, economic growth to the arab states. eventually, it can lead to a better tomorrow. we pray it will become a reality. i believe the real division is between skeptics and those who believe in peace. your voice will encourage, i believe. you came to us with the clear message that no one should let skepticism win the day. a vision that says clearly that peace is not only a wish, but a possibility. i fully support your call. there is no other way to make the fooch better. there is
and love and raise families. that's why every country that values justice should call hezbollah what it truly is, a errorist organization. because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stock pilse rockets to shoot at cities and support it is massacre of men and women and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah's allies, the asad regime has stockpiled chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we will continue to cooperate closely to guard against that danger. i've made it clear to alassad and all who follow his orders we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the southeastern people or the transfer of those weapons. the world is watching. e will hold you accountable. the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grips of a dit takor who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. assad must go so the serious future can begin. because true stability in syria begins upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people. one that protects all communities within its borders while making peac
't been tested against what hezbollah has been which is a much different store ji. >> that's certainly true. hamas fired i believe 4,000 rockets from gaza in a month. if this really does end in a fight with hezbollah in lebanon, hezbollah allegedly has at least 50,000 rockets, much better rockets, too. >> and iron dome could not handle 50,000? >> no way. no. it will help. i think there are 5 iron dome systems in place active at the moment. their goal is to create 13 iron dome systems. it will help a lot. but hundreds of rockets fired a day. it apt going to do that much. >> does this set back peace though in an odd way? if you can build fortresses for israel, then what is the incentive to do a two state solution? >> one of the issues of iron dome, one of the reasons that part of the military was against the iron dome is it was considered to be a defensive weapon. and israel, the military crowd is an offensive army. so they said we're spending money in the wrong place. we shouldn't be worried about defending. we should be worried about winning by creating attacking weapons. so the releva
of more convoys coming from our shipment of arms and nuclear arsenal, from syria to hezbollah. the question will come, what will happen the day after. they are fears in israel that either hezbollah or an agent of al qaeda will try to confiscate the storage of nuclear, chemical arsenal, in the case of these few hours when the regime actually falls. and in that case, israel is considered to have a ground assault into the specific locations of these bunkers. >> to secure the chemical weapons. >> to secure them. and that might i would say that might come in a contradiction with american interests. that would try to form or to support the rebels, without intervening militarily on the ground. and i think that israel wants to be sure that the united states completely approved the israeli point of view that the first priority would be to prevent either hezbollah or al qaeda forces to get hold of the strategic weapons, strategic weapon are the scud missiles and the chemical arsenal. >> from what i'm hearing from american officials, the u.s. might take that action unilaterally on its ow
of hezbollah, israel, between 2006 and 2009, went to the right. both the public opinion and the government. so the drama of the collision between the president seeking to draw close to arab and muslims and israeli government veering to the right, intensified the tension that manifested itself at the time. and add to this the fact that between the president and the prime minister at that time, there was no trust. i mean both ambassador indyk and myself sat on wt is normally known as one-on-one, but always is two on two because there has to be a notetaker. and both of us were fortunate enough to take notes in very decisive meetings between clinton, rabin and so forth. and you can see what happens when the two decision makers like each other and trust each other. and when they don't. and unfortunately, during the first four years there was a lack of trust between obama and netanyahu. and this is something that will transpire later but to me, e of the most important potential outcomes of this visit would be to restore or to build from the outset. >> rose: a relationship between netanyahu and obama
and conventional weapons. you have refugee problems on the turkish border. the al qaeda/hezbollah action in syria is very, very concerning to recognize terrorist organizations. this is real trouble real quick. if you want a diplomatic solution -- and i still think there's one possible -- you can't do it if you have no credibility with the opposition and no credibility with our arab league partners. and right now we find ourselves in that spot. so you have to build that credibility. this is not boots on the ground, by the way. i want to make that very clear, we don't need 101st airborne division showing up. >> when you said boots on the groupd, am i wrong? i thought you said over the weekend that you joined in with senator mccain and senator levin, and you want some kind of special forces to go in with syria to identify, locate, or somehow get the chemical weapons back. hence i call that boots on the ground. >> i think it's really important to be clear about what we're trying to do here. we have small groups, special capability forces that we can add to the mix here that does t doesn't -- is not
israel and hezbollah wants to destroy iowaial and the muslim brotherhood wants to destroy and western go around if only we had a peace process? with whom? >> chris: karl levin joined john mccain in calling for the president to consider a irstrikes to teak out the syrian air force and scud missiles. same question i had for speaker gingrich. what should the president do in syria given all of the complications and how important was this reconciliation that the president helped broker between israel and turkey both of whom have a dog in the hunt when it comes to the syrian civil war? >> the the situation in spearia has been a mess for a long time and likely to be a mess for a long time no matter what we do. there are deep religious and ethnic differences here. the likely end game is a civil that are will involve ethnic cleansing and a whole host of other things. why on earth do we want to get in the middle of that. the president decided with no good option pursue the best of that options. covert means and allies and support indigenous groups that are more favorable to us. with what you said
country that values justice should call hezbollah what it truly is, a terrorist organization. [ cheers and applause ] because the world cannot tolerate an organization that murders innocent civilians, stockpiles rockets to shoot its cities, and supports the massacre of men, women, and children in syria right now. the fact that hezbollah's ally, the assad regime, has stockpiles of chemical weapons only heightens the urgency. we'll continue to cooperate to closely guard against that danger. i've made it clear to bashar al assad and all who follow his orders, we will not tolerate the use of chemical weapons against the syrian people or the transfer of those weapons to terrorists. the world is watching. we will hold you accountable. the syrian people have the right to be freed from the grip of a dictator who would rather kill his own people than relinquish power. assad must go so that syria's future can begin. because true stability in syria depends upon establishing a government that is responsible to its people, one that protects all communities within its borders while making peace with
brewing in the israeli policy circles about how active should israel be in going after hezbollah convoys, take ought strategic weaponry? israel ills not -- i find that there's no one in israel that i met thinks the united states -- maybe you think this is a big mistake and i'm not talking to the right people, but of all the people i talked to i didn't mean anyone that thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. they just see the ute as such a mess, they don't see how at it going to be reversed. but at the same time they're concerned that hezbollah and taking whatever weapons they can, either into lebanon or keeping it in a part of syria they deem friendly as a kind of a depot of their open. here there are a lot of israelis who want to start the more pro-active hezbollah conveys there, that -- that convoy, the theys are stunned the russias have given this antiship missile which can hit things in the israeli port before they leave the port. very advanced missiles. and they're wondering where hezbollah is going next. so i it's not reshaping syria. they think that's above their pay grade bu
israeli homes devastated by hezbollah rockets. i've stood and met with children who simply want to grow up free from fear and flying in today i saw again how israel's security can be measured in mere miles and minutes. as president, i therefore made it clear america's commitment to the security of the state of israel is a solemn obligation. and the security of israel is nonnegotiable. today our military and intelligence personnel cooperate more closely than ever before. we conduct more joint exercises and training than ever before. we're providing more security assistance and advanced technology to israel than ever before. that includes more support for the missile defenses, like iron dome, which i saw today and which saves so many israeli lives. in short, and i don't think this is just my opinion, i think bebe, you share this, america's support for israel's security is unprecedented, and the alliance between our nations has never been stronger. that's the sturdy foundation we built on today as we addressed a range of shared challenges. as part of our long-term commitment to israel's secur
organization that targets innocent people. on our northern border iran's proxy, hezbollah, continues to stockpile arms and threaten our civilians while they urgently, while they target innocent people across the world. hezbollah is destroying lebanon and supporting the brutal massacre of the syrian people by president assad. fortunately the syrian nuclear capacity was destroyed but unfortunately thousands of chemical weapons remain. we can not allow those weapons to fall in the terrorists hands. itco lead to an epic tragedy. there's an attempt to bring spring to the arab world. it is an arab choice. it is an arab initiative. it may bring peace to the region, freedom to the people, economic progress to arab states. if realized it can lead to a better tomorrow. we pray it will become a reality. the vision between skeptics and those who believe in peace. your voice will encourage belief. you came -- you came to us with the clear message that no one should let skepticism win the day. a vision that says clearly that peace is not only a wish but a possibility. i fully support your call. th
in a last, desperate attempt to hold up -- you know to keep assad in power. hezbollah fighters are coming in and they are being armed with weapons from iran, flying over iraqi air space. starting immediately, iraq should heed the warn from this united states and disallow these military flights over its air space. >> shannon: quickly, we are almost out of time. a final thought here on this issue? >> well, i agree with what the chairman just said. i think in a bipartisan manner, congress needs to, obviously, try to -- to take control of this. assad is a brutal dictator and from a humanitarian point of view, he needs to g. but another thing ask thaiz very important. assad is iran's guy. assad, if he goes is a blow to iran. weapons going into lebanon, when the second lob none war was over between ezhezbollah and israel, hezbollah would not be allowed to re-arm. hezbollah is two or three times as strong as they were. they have been re-arming from iran, through syria, into lebanon. so assad is a bad guy. he is iran's guy. he has a stake in this and so do we. we ought to exert. it i think it's v
at them from gaza. they have chemical weapons in syria. they have hezbollah in their north. they have iran trying to build a nuclear weapon to eliminate them. the muslim brotherhood president of egypt. that strikes me as attacking the victim. >> greta: let me talk about the bigger picture issue. is this impossible for an american president? so many tried it, so many secretary of state's tried it and we manage the crisis from time to time, but the peace seems to be so elusive. >> i sometimes have trouble about being too candid about this. there is no peace process. this is nonsense. this is stuff western politicians do to feel good about themselves. hamas is dedicated to the destruction of israel. iran is dedicated to the destruction of israel. there are factions in syria dedicated to the destruction of israel. hezbollah is dedicated to the destruction of israel. muslim brotherhood want to destroy israel and elected the president. >> why did he go now in the second term? didn't seem to give much attention in the first term. why now? >> i have no idea. i think his polling numbers have gone
plays on the mind of hezbollah and dexter has just been in lebanon and done a piecn on hezbollah. it's the same logic. >> rose: pick up on that. >> it's moving supply thely beyond iraq. what worries me mostly about iraq right now -- >> there is always something beyond iraq. >> whate worries me about iraq s syria and what is happening inan syria and what is happening, asa far as we can tell, the sunnill rebellion in syria, which is a great thing, is basically restarting the political consciousness among want sunnis in iraq. it's not really restarting the insurgency yet, but you have a lot of cross-pol nizzation going on between the sunnis in iraq and the sunnis in syria. the sectarian sort of feeling, it's being driffen and fueled by the syrian revolt. we just saw the other day r members of the syrian army were freeing some rebels in syria. they crossed into iraq. they called ahead to their sunni friend in iraq who killed them. and so it's-- the border there is starting to look very, very blurry. and i think the-- you know, the prospect of a sunni shiite war from the iranian border th
it if they wanted to. the fact is, the most militant faction the palestinians want to destroy israel, hezbollah and the muslim brotherhood wants to destroy israel and iran wants to destroy israel and western politicians go along with the media and blab about, if only we had a peace process. with whom? >> chris: this week, carl levin the democratic chair of the senate armed services committee joined john mccain in calling for airstrikes to stick out the air force and skud missiles, and senator, what should the president do in sear yeah, given all of the complications, and, how important was this raproachment, and, when it comes to the syrian civil war. >> as the speaker said, the situation in syria has been a mess for a long time and is likely to be a mess for a long time no matter what we do. there are deep religious and ethnic differences and the end game is a civil war that will involve ethnic cleansing and a whole list of other things, why would we want to get ourselves directly in the middle of that? the president has decided with no good option, to pursue the best of that bad options, use
is that while it's being used we have syria, we have hezbollah in lebanon, and the situation is that the appearance is it is not only going to be in syria but hezbollah can reach all these chemical weapons and use it against israel in the future. >> reporter: so obviously there is some daylight between what israeli officials are saying, there were chemical weapons used, and what the president is saying, they're still assessing the situation perhaps for strategic reasons the president would no doubt also need some time to figure out what to do if the u.s. believes that any red line has been crossed, jake. >> all right. thank you, jessica yellin in jerusalem. afghan president hamid karzai told the u.s. not long ago that he wants u.s. special forces out of wardoc province not far from kabul. today we learned karzai will get his wish. the presence of u.s. special forces has been a big source of tension and has sparked protests in kabul over the weekend. president karzai wanted them gone earlier this month but the u.s. ignored the deadline, arguing the province is still a taliban
with respect to israel's growing challenges on its borders, particularly in lebanon with hezbollah in the south with gaza and egypt and, of course, with syria. the last thing that the united states wants is for netanyahu and the israeli people the belief that the president does not have his back and they would have to act unilaterally without due american consultation with israelis. >> and we know, michael, that the president is going to be going to ramallah to be talking to president mahmoud abbas. talked to one palestinian legislator who laid out conditions for returning to the negotiating table. either israel puts a six month freeze on the building in the west bank and they don't pursue international criminal court, or they come to some agreement on borders along the pre-1967 lines. do you see in any of this any hope for progress? >> well, unfortunately, not much, chris. i don't think that israel or frankly the united states are going to go along with those preconditions. and i think the only way negotiations are going to get restarted is if they're unconditional. and you know, one thing we
these chemical weapons or transferred these chemical weapons let's say to hezbollah or some other groups, that would presumably result in u.s. military action. i assume that's the threat out there, john. >> well, that is the threat. but then think about what that means. the president has been very clear his national security team has been very clear they don't see any scenarios under which you would put u.s. boots on the ground. would there be some special operations to try to take out additional chemical weapons? certainly the president would say he would want the regime held to justice after the fact. but what do you do in the short term? that is the big question. do you do more to help the opposition or is there a direct u.s. military role? if you take out -- it is very dangerous to take out a chemical weapons site. if you just bomb a chemical weapons site you can disperse the chemicals and do more harm than good. one of the reasons the u.s. has not talked at all about any military options is they range from bad to worse. it would be a tough dilemma for this president if he thought he
in particular are heading over the border to hezbollah, an organization in lebanon that the united states and israel both consider a terrorist organization. that is going to be something that is going to be on the agenda in the discussions. but this chemical weapon issue is one that they were going to be talking about beforehand. they also have talked about the difficulties if you speak with folks that know about how to get rid of some of the weapons, the difficulties of getting rid of chemical weapons, you cannot just do an air strike. you have to go in on the ground to pull those out. a very big concern. we've been on the border of the israel-syria border and been able to hear some of the fighting inside of syria. some of that fighting spilled over into israel. so definitely a very high concern, something that will be talked about between the president and prime minister netanyahu. >> probably just moves up on the agenda. do we expect president obama to move forward in the movement in the israeli-palestinian peace process as well? >> reporter: that is the issue that is causing controver
're really hezbollah or hamas, do you think the saudies are going to tell us? >> here in the united states they must satisfy a security process including an interview with a customs agent. i mean, that sounds more rigorous than when you just pass through customs when you're arriving in the u.s. and going through customs, no? >> in coordination, however, with the minister of interior of saudi arabia. in other words, it's a joint vetting process and the details, as you correctly point out, are not exactly clear at this point. yes, you're right that the united states government still has vetting appropriations, jurisdiction, over these applicants. >> megyn: how thorough will it it be? we're short on time, but i want to ask you, why are we doing this? we don't do it for germany and france, why are we doing it for the saudies. >> i think it has to do with all and the fact that, you remember after al attempted attack, the underwear bomber three years ago, saudi arabia was on the list of secondary countries to be inspected. and they complained bitterly, and it was taken off in weeks, and i think
circles about how active should israel be in going after hezbollah convoys, taking out strategic weaponry? israel is not as, i think there's more, i find there is no one in israel i think mets the united states, maybe you say this is a big mistake and maybe say i'm not talking to the right people but of all the people i talk to i didn't meet anyone who thought the u.s. would be decisive in syria. they have kind of, i won't say written off as the united states. they see it as such a mess they don't see how it will be reversed but at the same time they are concerned of hezbollah end of season sale taking whatever weapons that they can either into lebanon or maybe keeping it in a the past syria they deem friendly as kind of a depot of their own. and here i think a lot of israelis who want to start being more proactive in firing on hezbollah convoys there. they hit as you know that sa-17. those, that convoy, israelies are stunned that the russians have given this thing called this anti-ship missile which could hit things in the israeli port before they even leave israel's port. very advanced
